So I am playing around with GSender and I ran into an issue,
1 - I am running a 2.2khz 220v Spindle. its heavy, I know this.
2 - the spindle from start to finish runs through the Code 100% no issue.
So, I was surfacing a Cutting board with a 2" carbide tool bit, and everything was perfect.
right up until the end, where the job finished, and it centered itself in the work piece.
Problem A :
Because of the weight of the spindle, the Z dropped about 2-3mm, not having seen the drop, I wanted to run the bit over it again, however due to the drop, it started digging into the wood again.
This is the same issue, however its a little more obvious.
After the board was re-surfaced, the head was moved back to the center of the work, at 0,0
however this time, instead of dropping 1-2mm, the head just basically started dropping, right into the workpiece and carved a 4mm hole.
Question : How can I force the Z axis (x,y,z for that matter) to stay engaged, so the precision remains constant
I want to be able to load a board onto the table (that are always the same thickness) and run my Gcode to surface the board. I dont want to have to reset my Z after every run.
